ha! I saw the slogan announced in the spoiler topic, and it did´nt strike me as funny then, but now with the layout and font and crown it totally makes sense! Nice one!

It's from the Keep Calm and Carry On facsimile. This is rad but how many people will get this? Not that I give a fuck. I'm more concerned about navy blue... navy blue ftmfl

chelly

so...what's that then? (in ref to the keep calm) poster.

Im always too slow with these things. Freaks out

Noooo! Keep Calm and Carry On! It's a play on a slogan popular in Britain during WWII and it's had a resurgence lately with Shabby Chic inspired posters, tees and jewelry.

Very cool tee Olly.

EricDiaz

never heard of it, oh well.

chelly

oh. ok. thanks folks.

congrats olly

you'd definitely need to know about the original slogan to "get it" but it's a clever idea nonetheless.

It's cool how timeless the original is. It looks like something that would have been created today. I wasn't aware of this fashion trend but good job of turning it on its head so to speak.

Very funny shirt. Something I'd wear to infuse head scratches from people on the third world.

Soooo.. am I the only one who can see how big sales of this shirt will blow up IF (godforbid) president-people-are-not-for (coughmccaincough) wins the election tomorrow?

Let's hope that doesn't happen. :P
Let's hope this shirt sells on its own merits HAHAH

now that i get it, its clever and makes me giggle.

now the only question is, if I wore it while describing the newest Smiths album as 'fucking terrif', would I be a poser?

Flying Toaster

this is an amaaaaaaazing concept. I'd buy it but no one would understand it here.

phones

damn you, Olly!

i was only supposed to buy Herky's shirt this week. you owe me $15!

i might wear this underneath my Keep Calm shirt then rip it off and spaz out Bizzarro style.

Thanks for all the positive comments. I wasn't sure what kind of feedback this would get so I'm glad that people are digging it.

thepunkmonk

i dug it before i got it... and before i got it, it kinda reminded me of panic at the disco... and thats the only reason i didnt dig it :P

Daniel San

This is pretty sweet, but it kinda bums me that only Brits will really get it.

Did they ask you to design something for your own slogan?
Because that's pretty awesome.

And the slogan is an awesome take on the phrase btw!
